Supermaxi Wild Oats XI won its eighth line honors in the -Sydney to Hobart race on Sunday nike air max 2017 leather uk , officials said, to become the most successful yacht in the history of the competition.
The Mark Richards--skippered yacht crossed the finish line ahead of American newcomer Comanche in the grueling 628-nautical-mile (1,163-kilometer) race down the east coast of southern Australia, organizers the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia said.
"It was our toughest race. To have a boat [Comanche] so close is always difficult, especially when they are going faster than you," Richards told reporters in Hobart after the yacht crossed the line at Battery Point.
"We managed to pull it off, and I just said to the guys nike air max 2017 kpu uk , we have just got to hang in there, hang tough, minimize the -losses and wait for the first opportunity we could to attack, and we did and it paid off."
Wild Oats XI nike air max 2017 grey womens uk sale , one of five -supermaxis - the biggest and fastest yachts - in this year's race, was also first across the line every year from 2005 to 2008 and in 2010, 2012 and 2013.
It surpassed the record of MornaKurrewa IV, which won seven line honors titles in the 1950s and in 1960.
But choppy seas during the race meant the leaders were -unable to challenge the race -record set by Wild Oats XI in 2012 of 1 day nike air max 2017 grey womens uk , 18 hours, 23 -minutes and 12 seconds.
The brand-new, cutting-edge Comanche, owned by American technology entrepreneur Jim Clark nike air max 2017 grey uk , had a stellar start when it flew out of Sydney Harbour on Friday, followed closely by Wild Oats XI.
But as the boats turned south they encountered choppy seas, prompting the fleet to spread out as they tried to avoid the worst of the weather.
By morning the winds had eased, giving an advantage to the slim-line Wild Oats XI nike air max 2017 green womens uk sale , which broke away from the wider-bodied Comanche on Saturday afternoon.
Wild Oats XI extended its lead on the second night, taking advantage of a high--pressure ridge in the Bass Strait, although Comanche narrowed the gap to 10 nautical miles at Tasman Island on Sunday.
CANBERRA， April 12 (Xinhua) -- Australian swimmer Cameron McEvoy has swum the third-fastest 100 meters freestyle time in history overnight， on his way to qualifying for the 2016 Rio Olympics.
At the Australian Olympic qualifiers in Adelaide， McEvoy， 21， blitzed the field to swim a new Australian record of 47.04 seconds -- and the fastest ever 100 meters swum outside of the "super suit" era of 2008-09.
The super suits were banned from competition in January 2010 after world records went tumbling at the 2008 Olympics and 2009 World Championships; their polyurethane make-up was found to markedly improve performance as they were impermeable and aided buoyancy.
McEvoy finished just under a second ahead of second-placed Kyle Chalmers， 17， who also qualifies for the team， while James Roberts finished third and will also make the trip to Rio. James Magnussen finished fourth， meaning he will round out Australia's 4x100 meters team for the meet but will not compete in the standalone 100 meters event.
After the swim， McEvoy said Cesar Cielo Filho's world record of 46.91 (set in a super suit in 2009) was well within reach.
"It felt no different to any other race. If I had known I was that close there might have been something in me that could have pushed me a bit further，" McEvoy said post-race overnight.
"It's unbelievable... It makes me know that me and (coach) Richard Scarce are doing the right thing. It puts me in a good position going to Rio."
McEvoy said it would be important not to get ahead of himself before the Olympics， and that the mental battle would be just as difficult as the physical one - particularly now as he has announced himself to the world stage.
"The Olympics is notorious for not always producing the best time to win it and that's just because the mental game， being able to step up on the day， is levels above anywhere else. I'm very much aware of that，" he said.
"And I'm very much aware that everyone else in the world will be watching this race and firing them up to get back into training at 5am the next morning to try and beat me.
"While it's good， I can't sit back and relax and think it's going to come without anymore effort in Rio."
The Rio Olympic Games begin in Brazil in August.
MADRID, May 12 (Xinhua) -- So in the end like all of the bet dramas the destiny of the Spanish BBVA Primera Liga will be decided in the final act when the outcome of a season containing 38 matches is decided by 90 minutes in FC Barcelona's Camp Nou Stadium.
The weekend results in the 37th round of games in which Atletico drew 1-1 at home to Malaga nike air max 2017 green womens uk , Barcelona drew 0-0 in Elche and Real Madrid lost 2-0 away to Celta Vigo mean that if Atletico Madrid can draw in the Camp Nou on Saturday they will win their first league title since their iconic double winning campaign of 1995-96.
Barcelona on the other hand know that nothing other than a win will allow them to win a title which looked all but lost when Angel Lafita scored a last minute equalizing goal for Getafe in the Camp Nou nine days ago.
It's worth remembering that the two sides have already met five times this season: twice in the Spanish Supercup, twice in the Champions League and in their first league clash of the campaign and that Barca failed to win any of those five games, which produced four draws and a home win for Atletico which knocked Barca out of Europe.
Atletico were inches away from claiming the title on Sunday as only a flying save by Malaga keeper, Willy Caballero kept out Adrian Lopez's 92nd minute shot which would have started the party in Madrid.
